The Donald Keeps Leading The Pack

donaldYou can love him, you can hate him, you can call him all sorts of names.  But, Donald Trump is still leading the pack with 26% to Jeb’s 20%.

The other Republicans aren’t even close right now.  And, it’s unlikely that will change anytime soon.  Why?

For one thing, Donald knows who his audience is and he’s speaking to them.  He’s speaking to Republicans who vote.  And, they vote hard.  If the United States was in the middle of a hurricane, winds blowing–tree limbs snapping –  Republicans would be out dodging electrical wires to get to the polls.

Democrats, on the other hand, would be sitting at home watching it on MSNBC.

It’s laughable, but it’s true.  Democrats find reasons not to vote on election day while Republicans are more likely to pull the plugs from the ICU beds and crawl to their polling place – with ID in hand.

But, above all else, people – all people not just Republicans – are tired of the same old politicians saying the same things and getting absolutely nothing done.  It’s unlikely Donald Trump could actually build a wall around the southern U.S. and get Mexico to pay for it, but by God – you want that wall – you need that wall!

Trump is saying the things that ring true to many Americans even if they don’t have the facts to back it up.  China is out performing us, and we Americans think the rest of the world see us as a  laughing stock.

They like Trump because in their hearts they want American to be great again.  They want to build big things and shoot to the moon like we did in the 60s.  They want a president that cheers us on with great speeches that give us goosebumps.

We haven’t had that in a long time.  Whether or not Trump can actually win or whether he has the political acumen to be president is another story.  But, the Republican voters at least like the fact Donald’s cheering.
